11:08 am
the attacks in barcelona and cambrils with an explosion on wednesday in the town of alcanar, in which one person died. police believe a terror cell at the house was using it for bomb—making. among those arrested, this man, originally from morocco, whose documents were used to rent the van in barcelona. but he denies any involvement, saying that his identity papers had been stolen. the spanish prime minister called an emergency cabinet meeting after announcing three days of official mourning. he has denounced what he called the "jihadist attack" and said spain will not submit to terror. in barcelona, las ramblas is full of people once again. this world—famous promenade apparently unbowed by the terror attack here. but those killed and injured are being remembered in tributes of flowers and candles along the street. the nation is grieving and the world is watching. let's just show you the scene here
11:09 am
in placa de catalunya, catalonia square, where people are still standing here, having observed that minute's silence to pay their respects to those killed and injured in the las ramblas attack and the other attack in cambrils. and after that minute's silence, sustained applause. the king of spain was here, the spanish prime minister was here, the spanish prime minister was here, they were uploaded and the crowd were chanting, we are not scared, we are not afraid. that was their defiant message. and they really ca m e their defiant message. and they really came here in such large numbers because they wanted to show exactly that, that they're not going to be cowed by that terror attack in las ramblas, which of course, follows the pattern we have seen in other european cities, london, nice.
11:10 am
the weapon of choice appears to be for terrorists to drive rented vehicles into crowds will stop and the crowds in las ramblas yesterday afternoon came from all over the world because barcelona is one of the great tourist destinations, of course, unless members in particular is where of the busiest tourist destinations in all of europe. —— las ramblas in particular. it was packed with people when the attack unfolded yesterday. and these people here in barcelona, from here but also careerists who have come here, wa nted also careerists who have come here, wanted to pay their respects to the dead. —— tourists who come here. and that message, that barcelona will not pick out by terrorists. we will speak now to a member of congress and foremost secretary of state for security. —— former secretary of state. thanks for being with us here. how important do you think it
11:11 am
is that people like this come onto the street and show their not afraid of terror? i think it is absolutely essential. because what terror is going to do to all our cities, to all our countries, is to threaten us, try to make us really be scared, have seen, and try to change the way we live. what they are looking for isa we live. what they are looking for is a reaction. what they want is our overreaction. it is really important that, together, we support other ministrations, law enforcement officers and work against terrorism and send a message saying we are not going to be defeated by terrorists, ever. and just give us what you know about these attacks. it seems there was a sort of terrorist network, a terrorist cell, at least one self
11:12 am
that was operating here in barcelona and in cambrils as well? what we know for the moment, i don't have any further information than what you know to the press, but it appears to be a unique plot trying to attack in different moments and... it was perpetrated by different terrorists but it is very early to make any other statements about how the attack was organised and how people were involved, we should wait until the law enforcement and the police officers go through the investigation and we will have more clear information. currently, we have to rely on arable law forcing officers, they're really good, they're professional, they have been fighting against terrorism for many years in spain and we have a history of fighting against terrorism. they know how to do it
11:13 am
and as sure we will have clear information in the following days. we will know what kind of attack there are hoping to perpetrating what were the real intentions. as we we re what were the real intentions. as we were saying, barcelona, of course, one of the great tourist cities of the world, and listened embassies we re ever the world, and listened embassies were ever comes when they go to barcelona. it was iced —— las ramblas is where everyone goes. it was such a soft target, people walking up and down in the sunshine in the afternoon. yes, we have seen that another global cities, in london, manchester, paris, berlin, places where people from different countries get together for different purposes, business, tourism, whatever. what the terrorists want to do isjust whatever. what the terrorists want to do is just to give that message that they want to attack our way of life. they want to attack our values. they want to attack our common humanity. by targeting cities
11:14 am
where there are many people gather together, different nationalities, so together, different nationalities, so that they can show how they can harm all the world. so i think barcelona has the same situation, u nfortu nately, barcelona has the same situation, unfortunately, as any other european global city. it was attacked because we live in freedom, we believe in diversity, pluralism and that is what terrorists want to destroy. there hasn't been a real terror attack in spain since 2004, i think. are you surprised that it is barcelona that has been targeted, even though as you say, we have seen so even though as you say, we have seen so many attacks and other european cities in the last few month and use? that is right but we had a very, very horrible terrorist attack in 2004 in madrid and we have had many terrorist attacks from gta so we know what terrorism is. —— from
11:15 am
eta. we see in other cities in europe, the threat is against all the while, we have life, her principles and values. it can happen in barcelona, in many other countries. we have seen many important ways operations and many people were arrested and probably, we managed to tackle some of this problem in the past. but u nfortu nately, we problem in the past. but unfortunately, we cannot assure absolute safety. absolute security. global city is really difficult to achieve in our cities. because freedom for people leaving and going whenever they want, it's difficult to avoid it. so what happened in barcelona is the same as what has happened in other european cities. what would you say about the people
11:16 am
you turned out here any placa de catalu nya you turned out here any placa de catalunya in the middle barcelona today to that minute of silence, to applaud, chant and show they are not afraid. is it important that they came ata afraid. is it important that they came at a show defiance today? yes, i think the message of the people being united together and just showing that very clear message to the terrorist group, which is, we're not afraid and we're not going to change our way of life, we really have to be together to fight for what we believe in, to fight for a values. 0ur what we believe in, to fight for a values. oui’ common what we believe in, to fight for a values. 0ur common values. i think it's a really important message. we know from our experience in fighting against eta that this is the most powerful tool we have against terrorism. we had to fight against eta and it was very important to have people in these streets praying for peace and saying, we're never
11:17 am
going to be defeated by violence or by terrorist groups. this is the same. we have a very resilient and strong civil society in europe and in spain, and we are showing the world that we are gathered and that we can be different in many ways but we can be different in many ways but we share common values, common humanity. we rely on respect for life, respect the for body, respect forfreedom, life, respect the for body, respect for freedom, respect for many things. we show that the world. we have, unfortunately, if a history of fighting against terrorist groups, in intolerance, we're going to do that as many times as necessary. think you so much for your time. member of congress and former secretary of state for security there. i made it onto people in the

11:23 am
filmed some of what happened. shot. shots. shouting. that really dramatic footage was filmed by fitzroy davis from wolverhampton, he was part of a judo tea m wolverhampton, he was part of a judo team out here in spain and he told me what he saw and heard and why he decided to fill what was going on there. we were sitting in a bar by the front, and some girls just ran in, scared, and then fear on their faces,
11:24 am
and so one of the guys jumped up and had a look, see what was going on, and then people started running past us, and then one of the guys said, "run!" and we came out of the bar and i was standing on the street, and i got my phone out, because i saw this guy come running towards me. and then i started filming. first, somebody said, "call the police." within 20, 30 seconds, the police turned up, then they drew their guns, shouting something to the guy. and then next thing i know there were shots fired. he went down, and within two seconds he stood back up, then he stepped over a fence, then he came walking to the police, he was smiling, he was laughing at them, and they shot him again and then he fell down. and people might be amazed that
11:25 am
you would just film that. were you aware of what was going to unfold as you started filming? not until the police turned up, and it was only when the police turned up with their guns drawn then i realised, this is serious. and then when the first shots were fired, in one mind people were shouting me to come on and go, and in the other mind, the adrenaline was in there and i thought, i'lljust carry on filming, so that's what i did. that was fitzroy davies who filmed those pictures he's from wolverhampton and filmed some of those police action where they shot dead five terror suspects. i'm hearing that the de facto has gone up hearing that the de facto has gone up to 14, it was standing at 13 all
11:26 am
right. —— the death toll has risen to 14. i'm never dispute to a man who was here if you minute after the attack on las ramblas will stop —— 110w attack on las ramblas will stop —— now going to speak to. the bbc immediately asked if i was in town because i posted pictures in the morning and i had what down the street to 20 nits before, so i got on the train and try to comment, but immediately knew that the subway wasn't working so came here to do live reports from ice cores possible to the square. everyone was panicked, a stampede started, people would start running, in the streets around the plaza. it was an environment where everyone was very worried it was going to be an ongoing situation, special when you heard rumours about hostages being
11:27 am
taken, which wasn't true. 0r heard rumours about hostages being taken, which wasn't true. or what about the drivers being arrested, which was the case. and when police took guns and surgery running after the crowd, they did something was up, but nothing was. it was an environment of absolute fear and panic in the first hour is one quarter. go slap people don't know what initially what happens stop. adults on suspected because terrorist attacks have happened across europe. people were alarmed because the death row was rising, three to ten and entertain, it created an extreme and intense security situation. it's one thing people find very shopping. there hasn't been a major terror attack in spain since 2004. other countries, of course, france, germany, britain had seen terror attacks. you think it's something of an island, separated from anything else, but
11:28 am
that perception was violated yesterday. that israeli disbelief came from. people didn't believe that this is quite possible. —— people didn't believe. huge numbers really wa nted, people didn't believe. huge numbers really wanted, out onto the street for the minute's silence. really wanted, out onto the street for the minute's silencelj really wanted, out onto the street for the minute's silence. i was surprised. i came our way to las ramblas, it was full, thought it would take days to open it up but it was full of people hoping they can make a statement that we are not afraid and we want to show the week and go back to normal as soon as possible. that seems to be the message, really. the crowd are hunting, we're not afraid, we're not scared. —— chanting. buddha when we left, we went back to las ramblas, and you can hear them applauding there. people are... and and of course, barcelona's lifeblood is
11:29 am
tourism. it is packed with tourism all your ram. this is in the many tourists especially didn't expect. they can believe it. but it seems to be coming out and saying, we're not leaving sooner, we are staying and there's this view and not to give into it. it's notjust barcelona. the tourists who loves this message also want to send that message. the tourists who loves this message also want to send that messagem seems there was some sort of terror network operating off the radar of the authorities, not only in barcelona but also we are hearing about cambrils. a developer at around midnight, when we were still live reporting, hearing the people i been killed, presumably people associated with this activity. it seems larger than one person alone wilf, which gives that feeling of uncertainty, that this might not be wrapped up any time soon, especially since the drivers presumably still applied. he out there, has done this. —— present were still at
11:30 am
large. just like there have been arrests, suspects shot, the police are doing their best. they're doing as much as they can put up you can see this is not comparable to two days ago, there were not as many police officers, now they are armed on any corner, things have thank you. thank you. ijust want i just want to read you ijust want to read you a tweet we have had from borisjohnson. he says my thoughts are with the spanish people, and those affected by the barcelona attack. together we will defeat terrorism. thatjust in barcelona attack. together we will defeat terrorism. that just in from the foreign secretary, as the emergency services here in catalonia report that the death toll has risen from 13 to 14. with dozens of others injured, many of them critically ill, still in hospital. that is the latest from barcelona. let's get the weather now, with simon king.
11:31 am
some sunshine across parts of the uk at the moment but also some hefty showers. a fewer rumbles of thunder reported around the midlands. you can see the speckled cloud here, those are shower clouds. you can still see a good deal of sunny weather. through the afternoon, continuing with showers widely across england and wales. all of us at some point will probably catch a shower. but the showers, spells of rain across the north—east, it will turn very wet. could be localised problems later. quite cool and blustery in the north, blustery conditions elsewhere. a fresh appeal committee yesterday. —— a fresher feel compared to yesterday. 0ne committee yesterday. —— a fresher feel compared to yesterday. one or two showers continuing into the early hours of saturday, but for many of us should be a dry day with some sunshine. conjugated a bit by sunday, lots of cloud on some rain slowly spreading in from the west. this is bbc newsroom live.
11:32 am
the headlines at 11.30am: a minute's silence — followed by defiant clapping and chanting — has been held in barcelona to remember those caught up in the attacks yesterday. 14 people were killed and almost a hundred injured when a man drove a van into pedestrians on the main tourist street here on las ramblas — he escaped and is still on the run. a second terror attack took place in cambrils, south of barcelona. six bystanders and one police officer were injured — two seriously — when they were deliberately hit by a car. police officers shot dead five suspects, some of whom were wearing what appeared to be explosive belts. three people have been arrested — a teenager aged just 17 is suspected
11:33 am
to be the driver of las ramblas van. police say the attacks are linked — and are looking at a terror cell of 8—12 people. let's re—cap how events unfolded last night. just before 3pm uk time, a white van ploughs into people on las ramblas, a famous pedestrianised street in barcelona 13 people are killed and dozens more are injured. 14 people are killed and dozens more are injured. the police describe the incident as a terrorist attack. later that evening, at about 6.30 uk time, police find a second van in vic, 80km north of barcelona. the van is thought to be a getaway vehicle. then in the early hours of friday morning, a car is driven into people at the resort of cambrils, 110km south west of barcelona. the attackers‘ vehicle overturns.
11:34 am
a woman critically injured there has now died from her injuries. six people, including a police officer, are wounded. police shoot at the attackers, killing five of them. controlled explosions are also carried out. 0ur correspondent chi chi izundu is at the foreign office in london. we are not hearing so far of any breto ns we are not hearing so far of any bretons who were injured, or killed in these attacks. —— britons. what is the latest you are hearing from the foreign office? they have just issued a statement saying their thoughts are with the victims of the terrible attacks, and the people of spain. they also added that they are
11:35 am
currently assisting a small number of british people, they have not specified how many. they are working to find out if any more needed their help, they have also deployed additional staff over to barcelona, and have offered support to the spanish authorities. just to reiterate, the foreign office say they are currently assisting a small number of british people affected in yesterday's plasma terror attacks, and are working to find out if any more have been affected, they have deployed additional staff to barcelona and have offered support to any spanish authorities. here in strong condemnation from boris johnson? yes, he did say that together we shall defeat terrorism. the foreign office is also advising any british people in spain to contact family and friends via social media, and they are also saying that if you know of anyone that needs help, to advise the
11:36 am
foreign office so that they can help you out. thank you. let's go back to ben brown in barcelona. we are in plaza di catalonia, the square in the heart of barcelona. at the end of las ramblas, where the attack happened yesterday. this is where the band began itsjourney, driving at high speed, ploughing through civilians. the death toll we are hearing now from the emergency services has risen from 13 to 14. in the square here, a few moments ago, we had hundreds of people who wanted to come out onto the streets as a gesture of defiance, a show of defiance, and to observe a minute ‘s silence to pay their respects to the dead and injured. but also to show they will not be cowed by terrorism, they will not be cowed by terrorism, they will not let their city be
11:37 am
defeated by the terrorists. there was a minute's silence in a long round of applause, the king of spain was here, the prime minister of spain as well. the crowd were chanting, we are not scared. we are not afraid. very moving and emotional moment. right in the heart of barcelona. i have been talking to one british visitor to barcelona, richard gregg, who was here as the attack unfolded yesterday afternoon. it was fairly surreal and chaotic at that time. all we heard was a couple of tourists shouting that people had been hit and there was blood everywhere. we got onto las ramblas and there werejust people running everywhere, so we couldn't get anywhere near our apartment, which is literallyjust parallel with where the van ended up, so we made our way through the back streets, which were just filled with people at that time, panicking, really. the police also were in the back streets very, very quickly. las ramblas has numerous side alleyways all the way up and down it and they were literally flooded with police on foot and on motorcycles, getting us off
11:38 am
the street and clearly looking for someone, we now know. by the time we got back to our street, we could see where the van had ended and we could see bodies on the floor, but we just made our way back to our apartment as quickly as we could, because we'd then ended up within the police cordon, couldn't actually leave the building because obviously the marketplace where a lot of the armed police were was literally behind our building, so we were sort of in this trapped position. how long were you trapped there for? have you been able to go back to your apartment now? yeah, we stayed in the apartment for about two or three hours until we'd got all the international news. there was nothing on the news for about 20 minutes, half—an—hour, so we didn't really know the severity of what had happened, apart from by judging from the numbers of people running through the streets and the volume of police, and the helicopters overhead, so we knew that it was fairly serious. we left our apartment probably about 9:30pm last night to go and meet friends on the other side of barcelona, just check that they were all 0k, and the whole city was fairly quiet, fairly subdued, whereas normally
11:39 am
you'd expect barcelona to be buzzing at this time of year. 0bviously everyone is now very on edge. i suppose if you had been walking down las ramblas a few minutes earlier, you could have been caught up in the attack? absolutely, we literally would have been where the van ended up had we been two minutes earlier, because that's exactly where we were headed, to turn down the side street to go into our hotel. so we're really grateful that we were just about two minutes behind where the attack actually happened. you're on holiday here — are you staying, despite what's happened ? yeah, we're saying, we're staying until monday. we're just taking it day by day, seeing how things go. it was obviously... we were very freaked out last night and on edge, feel a little bit calmer today and, as you've mentioned, las ramblas is sort of getting back to some semblance of normality, there's lots of people down there and the stalls are starting to open back up. we feel fairly reassured by the volume of police and the security service's response,
11:40 am
so, yeah, we're intending to stay. but you're a bit shaken? a little bit shocked, a little bit on edge still. sort of hasn't really sunk in. as i say, the first sort of ten minutes after the attack, it was all fairly surreal, half the crowds were running and screaming away and the other half had no clue what was actually happening at all, so they're just standing around looking, wondering what's going on, so it was all a bit surreal for that first bit. then, as i say, once it became clear what's happening, that's when it starts to sink in, and when we saw people on the floor being tended to by emergency services you suddenly realise the severity of the situation, and we were very concerned last night until they'd arrested anyone, because we didn't know where anyone was. 0bviously now we hear that the driver's probably still unapprehended, so that does leave a little bit of apprehension, you know, worried about where we're going to go tonight or what we're going to do today. we want to stay in
11:41 am
secure places, really. and obviously there have been a string of these vehicle attacks across europe, including london. did you realise pretty quickly that that's probably what it was, when you saw everybody running? yeah, i think we realised, when the first tourist was shouting out, "people have been hit, there's blood," we thought it was perhaps just a tragic car accident. by that time we saw the volume of police, and then we could see there was the van there and bodies on the floor, we guessed pretty quickly that this was some form of deliberate attack. especially knowing las ramblas as well, it's a prime target for that sort of attack because you've got concentrated pedestrians in a small area — there is literally nowhere to run. as that van was going down, those people would've had nowhere to go because you've got traffic either side of you and literally just a complete mass of people in the middle, so there was nowhere to escape, so we guessed exactly what was going on. that was richard gregg talking to me
11:42 am
earlierfrom dartford. let's that was richard gregg talking to me earlier from dartford. let's just show you the scene, an las ramblas that richard was talking about. people laying flowers, lighting campbells as well. just a few hundred yards from where i am right now. “— hundred yards from where i am right now. —— lighting candles. people really wanting to come out onto the streets to pay their respects to the dead. and the injured. 14 killed in this attack, we now know. also as we have been saying, too, onto the streets, not to hide away in the hotels or apartments, too, and show they will not be cowed by terrorism. 0f course, not just the not be cowed by terrorism. 0f course, notjust the attack in barcelona, that unfolded yesterday afternoon, local time just before 5pm, at around one in the morning
11:43 am
local time, in cambrils, 5pm, at around one in the morning localtime, in cambrils, about100 kilometres from here on the coast, south—west from barcelona, a seaside town. that was when another vehicle, this time an audi car was driven into people, into pedestrians. seven we re into people, into pedestrians. seven were injured including a police officer. armed police responded very quickly, the car overturned and armed police shot dead five suspects. there were reports that they were wearing explosive belts as well. this is what some eyewitnesses there in cambrils told us. a couple of eyewitnesses to what happened in cambrils. it now appears there was a sizeable terror network in operation in catalonia, both here in barcelona and in cambrils. it is clear the authorities are talking perhaps eight to ten people in that cell. maybe more. there are three arrests made in connection with the barcelona attack, the driver of the van fled, got out of the vehicle and
11:44 am
fled on foot. he is still being searched for. i have been talking to someone else who witnessed the aftermath of the barcelona attack here in las ramblas, this is what he told me. iwas here in las ramblas, this is what he told me. i was at the top of the street, having a coffee, my normal routine. then there was a noise. next thing you know, coming from the bottom of that street was a stampede of people, thousands of people just running and running. it was a dead giveaway that something was wrong. we turned the corner, where the restaurant cafe is and we all ran inside. they locked us and we all ran inside. they locked us in. we were locked in for about three and a half hours. no one would give us any information, things were filtering through about them taking hostages. we were just inside there, chaos. children were crying. women crying. it was... i was quite
11:45 am
relaxed because i had not seen the man. but then after three and a half hours they let us go. the police made us walk up the aisle which was up made us walk up the aisle which was up the street. and then as we got to the cordoned—off area, there was another bang, like a noise. we started running. and everyone just panicked, there was another stampede. so at that point, i wasn't going to stick around. ijust ran. i ran for my life. and, yeah, it was just chaos. how long was it before you realised that this was a terror attack, that a vehicle had been used and that people had been killed? it was... well, we didn't know if it was terrorism or if was just someone who was crazy or something. but it took us about half an hour to kind of figure out what was going on. we were asking people who had run into the restaurant we were locked in what was happening. they didn't know because obviously, they were in shock, they were crying. it was quite harrowing, to be honest. people obviously, absolutely terrified. we have seen the pictures, people just running for their lives? yeah, running for their lives. it was pandemonium in the streets. and then they, the police cordoned off everything so it was impossible to get on.
11:46 am
people who lived in this area were just stuck. you know, so if you wanted to try and get to your safe place at home, you had to just stick around and hope that these suspects were apprehended without any problems. i went through the ones in london when i was young, so, yeah, it's just very important that we get back to normal routine, people just go back to doing what they do. it was quite sad for me, because yeah, this is an isolated incident. but in other places around the world, this is happening on a daily basis. and we need to help them, know. it's not just. .. it happens once here, it's small—scale and we're all, like, you know, panicking. it's happening in places around the world with ten times the scale, 20 times the scale. so it's just important that we get back to our normal routine and keep on doing the things we do, go to the places we go to. and barcelona is an amazing city. so, yeah, just please come and visit. because it's beautiful. and las ramblas, of course, such a tourist destination. anyone who comes to barcelona comes to las ramblas. yeah, everyone and anyone.
11:47 am
my friends were here two days ago and they left on sunday. and i'm so glad they're 0k. but, yeah, it's just the place to be. you look at it, it's an iconic street, people selling, it's vibrant, it's alive. so it's a bit of a shock that it does happen to us. the people behind this, and we are hearing there might have been a terror cell of eight people, maybe, who planned this, it was obviously an attack on tourists, and people not only from this part of the world but from right around the world who come to barcelona to see what a beautiful city it is. yeah, i mean, i guess it'sjust an attack on freedom and on people who want to live, you know, happy lives. but it's important that we have compassion against people around the world and people who, you know, not everyone is bad. so... yeah, it's important we just carry on and keep living the way we live. 13 people killed, doesn't injured. 13 people killed, dozens injured. what were your feelings about the people who did this? devastating. how are you going to feel? you know, it's on my street.
11:48 am
it's where i live. you know, iwalk the street every day. i feel happy, vibrant. yeah, it's devastating. sad, very sad. and you willjust be carrying on with life as normal now? of course. you know, first, it's just a bit of a shock. you don't expect it on your doorstep. but if you don't, like, what are you going to do? just be at home and stay at home and like a recluse? you've just to keep living life. that was a witness talking to me earlier. i'm joined live now by one of the tourists who comes to this city, and this isjulia ashes from liverpool. julia, tell us, you were in the crowd observing a minute's silence. why did you want to come out onto the streets. i think it's incredibly important to give a message to terrorists that they will not win. 0ur way of life will not change, they have not succeeded. i was scared, i am a month, but at the end of the day i genuinely believe
11:49 am
in the goodness of humanity and that's what you saw them. it was very powerful. did you feel that? it was very very powerful. did you feel that? it was very moving when everyone very powerful. did you feel that? it was very moving when everyone was united and still and silent. no, you will not win. they said we are not scared, we are not afraid. that was powerful. gas, incredibly powerful, and again speaking as an ebb is important to tell that to my daughter. we cannot live our lives locked away. —— speaking as a mamma. barcelona is a beautiful place. in order to honour them, ifelt it was important that there were people here from liverpool, glasgow, all over the uk. all over the world. everyone has a really friendly. it's so important we embrace each other. but we celebrate life and do not give in to people who have no respect for the dignity of human life. this is a place where people come from all over the world, and las ramblas in particular. everyone who comes to barcelona walks up and down this street. absolutely, it's a
11:50 am
beautiful spot. there are people everywhere, friends were saying, have you been there? absolutely. it's a fantastic spot to gather, to people watch, to have lunch. the actions were terrifying and awful, but i want to reiterate a feeling that as a mamma, we have to get out and say to the terrorists that we will carry on. we will visit these beautiful parts of the world. living a full life is not about living at home scared to leave your front door, it's about getting out and celebrating life. the vast majority of people are good, decent human beings. you are here on holiday, who are you with? i am with my daughter and husband, we're flying back tonight. we had been on the bus tour yesterday, and we were literally two minutes away from the attacks on people in the hotel were very scared, very lucky, we feel really sad for those people. again, it
11:51 am
would put us off travelling. we just wa nt to would put us off travelling. we just want to live a life and limb a full life and get that message that you will not win, we're not scared. when was it that you realise they had been some sort of terror attack?|j heard been some sort of terror attack?” heard a bang, we got off the bus and heard a bang, we got off the bus and heard a bang, there were lots of police vans going down the road. we knew something had gone on. when we got back to the hotel a lot of people were shaken up, they had been closer to it. they had heard the crash, people running and terrified. it was really quite a scary time for them. we have seen terror attacks in britain, in london, using vehicles. and in other european cities, like france and germany and so on. did you ever think anything like that would happen in barcelona? no, not at all. ironically i have been to marrakesh and i was more nervous that. the messages, you have to be very careful about your safety but at the same time, think 0k, careful about your safety but at the same time, think ok, it's happened in barcelona, the police have been
11:52 am
fantastic. they are everywhere, there is a very real presence here. they have upped the security. the message needs to be given that you need to come to these beautiful places. a very powerful message then you put it very well. thank you so much for being with us. much more throughout the day of course from barcelona. but now i will hand you over to simon king for the latest weather. quite a bit of sunshine at the moment across the uk but also some heavy showers developing. a few rumbles of thunder around the bristol channel. the midlands as well. some speckled shower clouds, though a bit more consistent across north east scotland. that is where the rain will continue into the afternoon. elsewhere a brush of showers into the afternoon. all of us showers into the afternoon. all of us at some point catching the odd shower, one or two could be heavy. heavy rain across the north—east of scotla nd heavy rain across the north—east of scotland continuing, by the end of the day there could be a bit of rainfall here. perhaps a few
11:53 am
localised flooding problems. for southern and western scotland, northern ireland into england and wales, continuing with this theme of sunny spells, the odd shower, many of us seeing one or two ago showers passing through. temperatures 16, 17, 18 degrees. fresher than yesterday, quite a blustery wind coming in from the west and north—west. this evening, a few showers continuing. for the daylight test at edgbaston, there could well bea test at edgbaston, there could well be a shower interrupting things into this evening. 0vernight tonight, temperatures down to about 11 to 13 degrees. saturday starts off not too bad. plenty of dry weather, some sunshine, but the shower clouds building up. there will be the odd one towards northern and western areas. not as much as today. during the afternoon, plenty of dry weather around. scattered showers in scotland. temperatures tomorrow, 17 to 22. for sunday, a bit, located. we have these areas of low pressure,
11:54 am
these are the remnants of x hurricane gert. it will close on whether fans ahead of it. that will gradually move its way into the west. there is some uncertainty of the exact position to that rain, how far it moves north, and how heavy it will be during sunday. generally speaking, the north and east stay largely dry. going into next week, as that low pressure moves away, we will have brief spells of warmer air coming in from the tropics. into monday, some sunshine across southern areas, temperatures could get up into the mid—20s. further north, still uncertain but likely to be some heavy rain at times. temperatures falling away the further north you go, 17 to 19 degrees. more details on the website. for now, that's all from me. this is bbc news, and these are the top stories developing at midday.

to bbc newsroom live. spanish police say they have shot dead five suspected terrorists in the seaside resort of cambrils overnight, after a second attack in the country within 12 hours. the men, who were reported to be wearing fake explosive belts, were killed after driving into a group of people, including a police officer. a woman has died from her injuries. italian tourist bruno gulotta has been named as one of the victims killed on the ramblas. the attack in cambrils happened just hours after 13 people were killed and almost 100 injured in barcelona, after a van was driven into pedestrians along las ramblas.
11:57 am
so far three people have been arrested, none of whom are the driver of the van. so—called islamic state have claimed responsibility but have offered no proof. citizens of some 24 countries are said to have been caught up in the attack. officials say they believe an explosion in a house, in a small village over 100 miles away from barcelona, on wednesday is also linked. let's go live to barcelona. we are in placa de catalunya, catalonia square, right here in the heart of barcelona. just over an hour ago, this square was packed with thousands of people he wanted to come onto the streets of barcelona to observe a minute's silence in memory of those who lost their lives and were injured in these two separate terrorist attacks, but also
11:58 am
to show defiance and that they are not afraid. they were chanting after the minute's silence, we are not scared, we are not afraid. and there was a loud round of applause from the crowd, a gesture of defiance that they will not be cowed. the king of spain and prime minister of spain, mariano rajoy, were also here. as well as the attack here in barcelona, yesterday, that left 13 people dead and dozens more injured at las ramblas when a van was driven at las ramblas when a van was driven at high speed for half a climate, ploughing pedestrians and tourists, then in the early hours of the morning local time, there was a second attack at cambrils, a hundred kilometres south of barcelona, a seaside town where a car was driven into pedestrians, seven people injured including a police officer. and we know now, one killed as well. and we know now, one killed as well.

and this time, the car overturned, armed police were there on the scene very quickly and shot dead five terror suspects, some of whom a p pa re ntly terror suspects, some of whom apparently were wearing explosive belts. that get this report from richard lister. in cambrils, this man has canisters strapped to his chest and appears to be taunting police. they opened fire. the man is hit but gets back up. and the shooting continues as bystanders look on. eventually, he is killed. he is one of five terrorist suspects shot dead by police here. gunshots. they were suspected of having driven a car into pedestrians in cambrils at about 1am, injuring seven people and leaving many others in shock. translation: i suddenly heard "bang, bang, bang" here in the port. and after the bang, bang, bang, people were screaming. and then the police screaming. and then more screaming. i was nervous. i did not know where to go. i went to the beach and hid there.
12:00 pm
eight hours earlier, another vehicle on another spanish street being used as a weapon. this was las ramblas in barcelona. crowded with tourists and shoppers when a white van drove through them all, mowing down people for half a kilometre before the driver fled. it was the definition of fear yesterday. people were terrified. they were running without knowing in which direction they were going. it was incredible to watch how quickly people reacted. how quickly people responded and worked together. because people were scared, people did not know what to do. through working together, a lot of people were in safer places. the authorities are now linking the attacks in barcelona and cambrils with an explosion on wednesday in the town of alcanar, in which one person died. police believe a terror cell at the house was using it for bomb—making. among those arrested, this man, driss 0ukabir, originally from morocco, whose documents were used to rent the van in barcelona. but he denies any involvement, saying that his identity papers had been stolen.
12:01 pm
the spanish prime minister called an emergency cabinet meeting after announcing three days of official mourning. he has denounced what he called the "jihadist attack" and said spain will not submit to terror. in barcelona, las ramblas is full of people once again. this world—famous promenade apparently unbowed by the terror attack here. but those killed and injured are being remembered in tributes of flowers and candles along the street. the nation is grieving and the world is watching. the people who witnessed what happened here are still in a state of shock but anxious to come at onto the streets to show they would be cowed by what has happened. let's talk to stephanie wilson who is on holiday here and is from runcorn in

12:05 pm
feeling i have never experienced before in the water again. my heart goes out to everyone who was hurt, lost their lives, it's tragic. breaks my heart. tovey your ears is a prize for your boyfriend, zebra? —— you are here as a surprise for your boyfriend, is that right? so much we landed yesterday morning, it came back, or would for now —— look for somewhere to enjoy some wine. and then that happen. thank you, we fight back tomorrow. people were coming out onto the streets today in large numbers, chanting, we're not afraid, we are not scared. is that the message that needs to 12? absolutist view, these people dictate the way you live. —— absolutely. you need to come together. everyone came together, it was so together. everyone came together, it was so beautiful. even today, walking on the street, it's still a bit ofan walking on the street, it's still a bit of an edgy feeling, when you
12:06 pm
hear a bit of an edgy feeling, when you heara siren or bit of an edgy feeling, when you hear a siren or cross the road, you're a bit edgy. but everyone is in the same situation, you just pull together. and i feel really proud to be with them and share it with them. isa be with them and share it with them. is a beautiful city. you come here from all of the world, and to las ramblas regularly. we were saying la st ramblas regularly. we were saying last night, when cross the road where it happened, you couldn't even move because it was that busy. everyone just enjoying the sunshine. and for some thing to happen in this city is horrible. it really is horrible. villa, to use spears, but thank you for talking to us. very kind of you. —— really traumatic experience. she is from winkleman in britain and was here visiting with her boyfriend. and so the attack unfolding as it happened. —— from lincoln. and in the early hours in cambrils,100 commenters away, another attack, a car driven at
12:07 pm
pedestrians. —— 100 kilometres away. police shot suspects. and a man from britain took some video on his phone. gunshot. shouting. that dramatic footage taken on his phone by fitzroy davies from wolverhampton, who was visiting cambrils. i talked to him about what he had seen and heard. we were sitting in a bar by the front, and some girls
12:08 pm
just ran in, scared, and then fear on their faces, and so one of the guys jumped up and had a look, see what was going on, and then people started running past us, and then one of the guys said, "run!" and we came out of the bar and i was standing on the street, and i got my phone out, because i saw this guy come running towards me. and then i started filming. first, somebody said, "call the police." within 20, 30 seconds, the police turned up, then they drew their guns, shouting something to the guy. and then next thing i know there were shots fired. he went down, and within two seconds he stood back up, then he stepped over a fence, then he came walking to the police, he was smiling, he was laughing at them, and they shot him again and then he fell down. and people might be amazed that you would just film that.
12:09 pm
were you aware of what was going to unfold as you started filming? not until the police turned up, and it was only when the police turned up with their guns drawn then i realised, this is serious. and then when the first shots were fired, in one mind people were shouting me to come on and go, and in the other mind, the adrenaline was in there and i thought, i'lljust carry on filming, so that's what i did. fitzroy davies from wolverhampton telling me what he saw and taking extraordinary to video footage on his phone. we also spoke to a couple of other eyewitnesses in cambrils. theirs were some eyewitnesses in cambrils on what happened there in the early hours of the morning,
12:10 pm
local time. ijust the early hours of the morning, local time. i just want to show you some pictures now from las ramblas, just very close to where we are here in the heart of barcelona. people have been laying flowers all through the morning and lighting candles. paying their respects to those who died. 13 people killed when that van rammed into them for about half a kilometre, swerving left and right, weaving through pedestrians on the pavement and striving very high speed. las ramblas is one of the great tourist attractions in barcelona and all of europe, really, people come from all over the world to visit this beautiful city and las ramblas is right at the heart of barcelona, where everyone wants to go for a stroll. it was packed with people yesterday when the van struck. but then after the attack here 80 hours later, that attack in cambrils and i think we can speak to cbs reporter. —— a fewer hours later. he isn't cambrils ryan for us. can you tell us what happened?
12:11 pm
while, you had that attack here, you could hear gunfire from several different areas up and down the street, it was a police shoot out. terrorists had struggled appeared to be suicide vests on their bodies, those were later detonated by a bomb squad and find out not to be real operating suicide vests. but eyewitnesses here say they were panicked, they were afraid, they watched this unfolding, so these people with suicide vests and we have seen social media video that has been broadcast over and over again where you can hear the gunfire in that shoot out where police killed those five suspected terrorists. and it does appear that there is some sort of wider terror network? because we have had an attack here in barcelona, then that one is yours later in cambrils, and a network that was apparently off the radar authorities and catalonia?
12:12 pm
absolutely. there are reports that the caa had won that in fact, spain to could be a target in coming weeks. —— the cia. but certainly, taking holiday—makers by surprise here, it's a scene that is unusual at the moment, an investigation is underway, police lined up and people have gone to look at this but on the other side of me here, you have the beautiful mediterranean on a beautiful mediterranean on a beautiful beach day. this of course, these attacks really affecting tourists. this is the heart of the tourists. this is the heart of the tourist time here it in spain. people describe scenes of panic and the spanish police are reporting now, saying now that this indeed appeared to be a wave of attacks that had them than by terrorists. and cbs news is learning that this may not have just been inspired by as is but this may have indeed been carried out by isis itself. and in
12:13 pm
terms of the casualties figures, what is the latest on that? how many people, in terms of casualties?” believe it was five civilians, pedestrians had been wounded, 56. and one policeman, we havejust learned this morning that one of the people wounded has now died from this incident, bringing up the overall death toll from these attacks to at least 14. but still many severely critically injured. —— five or six pedestrian wounded. many severely critically injured. —— five or six pedestrian woundedm the mood is there, is there still tension after what happened? tension, yes, but also surprise, shock. a lot of people are kind of just walking around as, u nfortu nately, just walking around as, unfortunately, you see after an incident like this, trying to piece together what might have happened for themselves, trying to understand how terror could have struck this otherwise idyllic each resort town. thank you very much indeed. cbs

12:18 pm
a member of congress and former secretary of state for security. because what terrorists want to do to all our cities, to all our countries, is to threaten us, try to make us really be scared and try to change the way we live. what they are looking for is our reaction. what they want is our overreaction. it is really important that, together, we support our administrations, law enforcement officers and work against terrorism and send a message saying we are not going to be defeated by terrorists, ever. and just give us what you know about these attacks. it seems there was a sort of terrorist network, a terrorist cell, at least one cell that was operating here in barcelona and in cambrils as well? what we know for the moment, i don't have any further information than what you know
12:19 pm
through the press, but it appears to be a unique plot trying to attack in different moments and... it was perpetrated by different terrorists but it is very early to make any other statements about how the attack was organised and how people were involved, we should wait until the law ——and how many people were involved, we should wait until the law enforcement and the police officers go through the investigation and we will have more clear information. we have to rely on our law enforcement officers, they're really good, they're professional, they have been fighting against terrorism for many years in spain and we unfortunately have a history of fighting against terrorism. they know how to do it and i'm sure we will have clear information in the following days. we will know what kind of attack they were hoping to perpetrate, what were the real intentions. as we were saying, barcelona, of course, one of the great tourist cities of the world,
12:20 pm
and las ramblas, where everyone comes when they go to barcelona. it was such a soft target, people walking up and down in the sunshine in the afternoon. yes, we have seen that another global cities, ——yes, we have seen that in other global cities, in london, manchester, paris, berlin, places where people from different countries get together for different purposes, business, tourism, whatever. what the terrorists want to do is just to give that message that they want to attack our way of life. they want to attack our values. they want to attack our common humanity. by targeting cities where there are many people gather together, different nationalities, so that they can show how they can harm all the world. so i think barcelona has the same situation, unfortunately, as any other european global city. it was attacked because we live
12:21 pm
in freedom, we believe in diversity, pluralism and that is what terrorists want to destroy. there hasn't been a real terror attack in spain since 2004, i think. are you surprised that it is barcelona that has been targeted, even though as you say, we have seen so many attacks on other european cities in the last few month and use? ——on other european cities in the last few month and years? that is right, but we had a very, very horrible terrorist attack in 2004 in madrid and we have had many terrorist attacks from eta so we know what terrorism is. we are used to fighting against it. we see in other cities in europe, the threat is against all the world, our way of life, our
12:22 pm
principles and values. it can happen in barcelona, in many other countries. we have seen many important police operations and many people were arrested and probably, we managed to tackle some of this problem in the past. but unfortunately, we cannot assure absolute safety. absolute security, global safety is really difficult to achieve in our cities. because freedom for people leaving and going whenever they want, sometimes it's difficult to avoid it. so what happened in barcelona is similar to what has happened in other european cities. what would you say about the people who turned out here in placa de catalunya in the middle of barcelona today to observe
12:23 pm
a minute of silence, to applaud, chant and show they are not afraid. is it important that they came at a show defiance today? yes, i think the message of the people being united together and just giving that very clear message to the terrorist group, which is, we're not afraid and we're not going to change our way of life, we really have to be together to fight for what we believe in, to fight for our values. our common values. i think it's a really important message. we know from our experience in fighting against eta that this is the most powerful tool we have against terrorism. we had to fight against eta and it was very important to have people in the streets praying for peace and saying, we're never going to be defeated by violence or by terrorist groups. this is the same. we have a very resilient and strong civil society in europe and in spain, and we are showing the world that we are gathered and that we can be different in many ways but we share common
12:24 pm
values, common humanity. we rely on respect for life, respect for liberty, respect for freedom, respect for many things. we want to show that to the world. we have, unfortunately, if a history of fighting against terrorist groups, against intolerance, extremism, and we're going to do that as many times as necessary. much more coming up from barcelona but that's just catch up with the good afternoon. a rather mixed outlook continues today and into the weekend. sunshine and showers this afternoon but some showers will be
12:25 pm
very heavy, perhaps country with blustery winds. especially for parts of wales and the south—west around because tier is the afternoon goes on. could see gales in places. scattered showers across the country, just about anywhere, they could be heavy and sundry, persistent rain across north—east scotland. we have had some reports of localised flooding in some places. london could get up to 21 degrees. this evening, showers will continue, blustery winds as well, but the showers will fade away apart from parts of scotland and northern ireland were the will continue into saturday. 11—14d into the weekend. tomorrow, another day of sunshine and showers, fewer than today and more in the way of dry weather and sunshine. sunshine for many but patchy cloud and rain for many in the south—west. that's from you, by fred. in breaking news, an italian father — bruno gulotta — is the first victim of the spanish attacks to be named. the 35—year—old was
12:26 pm
killed on las rambles. he was on holiday with his partner and two children. we also have some breaking news from the metropolitan police, a statement in the last few minutes from mark rowley of the metropolitan police, saying our thoughts are with spain, the victims, their families and all other people affected by yesterday's barbaric attack in barcelona. he says the metropolitan police have offered their support and assistance to the spanish authorities, who are of course continuing to respond to those two attacks and continuing the hunt for suspects. the statement continues, we are liaising closely with the spanish verities and await further updates regarding the nationalities of the deceased and the injured. officers are at uk
12:27 pm
ports today, the statement says, ready to meet british holiday—makers returning to the uk from the region. in order to take any witness accounts. anyone who has returned from spain could also call a confidential hotline, and there is a number to ring if you havejust returned and have any information. that is 0800789321. police are urging anyone with footage that may assist the investigation to upload it. the current threat, the police say, is global. it is only by working together that can be defeated. our network of counterterrorism police liaison officers posted in locations around the world to help us to aid investigations nationally and it says we have a long tradition of collaborating with the very capable spanish police on terrorism matters. the statement from the metropolitan police continues, in the uk the
12:28 pm
current threat remains severe, meaning an attack is highly likely. and activity by the police and the security services continues around the clock. the police remain on heightened state of readiness. the key advice remains to run to a place of safety if you are in any concerns, if there is nowhere to run, then it is better to hide. that statement from the metropolitan police assistant commissioner mark rowley in the last few minutes. saying that the police are liaising with the spanish police as they continue their investigations into those two tax. spanish police say they have shot dead five suspected terrorists in the seaside resort of cambrils overnight, after a second attack in the country within 12 hours. the men, who were reported to be wearing fake explosive belts, were killed after driving into a group of people, including a police officer. a woman has died from her injuries. police say the situation there is now under control.
12:29 pm
in the last half hour, italian tourist bruno gulotta has been named as one of the victims killed on the ramblas. the attack in cambrils happened just hours after 13 people were killed and almost 100 injured in barcelona, after a van was driven into pedestrians along las ramblas. the area, which is popular with tourists, was packed with holiday makers. witnesses have described seeing a white van zig—zagging at speed, deliberately targeting people, knocking many to the floor and sending others fleeing for cover in shops and cafes. police believe both the attacks are linked. so far three people have been arrested, none of whom are the driver of the van. so—called islamic state have claimed responsibility but have offered no proof. citizens of some 34 countries are said to have been caught up in the attack. one belgian national has been confirmed among the dead. france's foreign ministry said that 26 french nationals were injured, with at least 11
12:30 pm
in a serious condition. officials say they believe an explosion in a house, in a small village over 100 miles away from barcelona, on wednesday is also linked. police say the residents there appeared to be ‘preparing an explosive device'. let's re—cap how events unfolded last night. just before 3pm uk time, a white van ploughs into people on las ramblas, a famous pedestrianised street in barcelona. 14 people are killed and dozens more are injured. 13 people are killed and dozens more are injured. the police describe the incident as a terrorist attack. later that evening, at about 6.30 uk time, police find a second van in vic, 80km north of barcelona. the van is thought to be a getaway vehicle. then in the early hours of friday morning, a car is driven into people at the resort of cambrils, 110km south west of barcelona. the attackers‘ vehicle overturns.
12:31 pm
a woman critically injured there has now died from her injuries. six people, including a police officer, are wounded. police shoot at the attackers, killing five of them. controlled explosions are also carried out. richard lister reports. you may find some of the pictures distressing. in barcelona today, a minute's silence. the prime minister mariano rajoy and king felipe stood shoulder to shoulder as the city remembered its dead. and then, defiant applause for several minutes. people here determined to show that they won't be broken by the terror that came to their streets. in the resort town of cambrils, this man has canisters strapped to his chest and appears to be taunting police. they open fire.
12:32 pm
the man is hit but gets back up, and the shooting continues as bystanders look on. eventually he is killed. he is one of five terrorist suspects shot dead by police here. they were suspected of having driven a car into pedestrians in cambrils at about 1am, injuring seven people and leaving many others in shock. translation: i suddenly heard a bang, bang, bang here in the port. and after the bang, bang, people were screaming, and then the police screaming. and then more screaming, i was nervous, i did not know where to go. i went to the beach and hid there. eight hours earlier, another vehicle on another spanish street being used as a weapon. this was las ramblas in barcelona, crowded with tourists and shoppers when a white van drove through them all, mowing down people for half a kilometre
12:33 pm
before the driver fled. it was the definition of fear yesterday. people were terrified, they were running without knowing which direction they were going. it was incredible to watch how quickly people acted, how quickly people responded and worked together because people were scared, people did not know what to do. through working together, a lot of people were in safer places. the authorities are now linking the attacks in barcelona and cambrils with an explosion on wednesday in the town of alcanar in which one person died. police believe a terror cell at the house was using it for bomb—making. among those arrested, this man, driss 0ukabir, originally from morocco, whose documents were used to rent of the van in barcelona. but he denies any involvement, saying his identity papers had been stolen. the spanish prime minister called an emergency cabinet meeting after announcing three days of official mourning. he's denounced what he called the jihadist attack, but said spain will not submit to terror. in barcelona, las ramblas is full
12:34 pm
of people once again, this world—famous promenade apparently unbowed by the terror attack here. but those killed and injured are being remembered in tributes of flowers and candles along the street. the nation is grieving and the world is watching. let's go straight back to barcelona and my colleague ben who is live there for us now. hello. the latest we are hearing from the emergency services is that the combined casualty toll in terms of injuries from the barcelona attack and the cambrils attack is 130. we know 14 people were killed in all, 13 here, one in cambrils. the total number of injured as 130, to give you an idea of the scale of the
12:35 pm
devastation from those two different attacks. the injured here in barcelona are attacks. the injured here in barcelona a re off attacks. the injured here in barcelona are off 34 different nationalities. the french, for example, 26 french casualties, 11 of them seriously ill. that gives you an idea of how different nations have been affected. the british foreign office saying there are a small number of british casualties among the victims of these attacks. here in barcelona, the mood is really one of the clients, we have seen those extraordinary images of people crowding into the square, catalonia square, wanting to not only have a minute's silence but also to shout out, to chance, we are not afraid, we're not scared. in message of defiance to the terrorists. with me is nafees hamid who was a few blocks away when the attack happened, and has been in the city for three years studying the link between values and identity in political movements, including terrorism. give us your impressions.” give us your impressions. i was a few blocks away. i heard people
12:36 pm
screaming. running towards me. i immediately saw the police responding quickly, i could hear the sirens, helicopters in the air. it was a bit surreal in some ways, a terrorism researcher who has been researching your hardest to radicalisation in barcelona, to have an attack happened so close to home. it appears from what the police have said that there is quite a wide terror network behind the attack here and in cambrils as well. what do we know ofjihadists operating in spain and germany? there has not been a terror attack in spain since 2004. correct. there have been hundreds of arrests going on for the last few years, there are networks present, but for the most part they have been either trying to go to syria or trying to help coordinate attacks and other countries. all actively carrying out attacks in other countries. spain itself has not been the primary target. that is also a general trend we are seeing the terrorist attacks in europe, they do not have the freedom of
12:37 pm
movement to carry out the ideal attacks or to go somewhere abroad. they are tending to attack more locally, and trying to maximise casualties. we have seen the vehicle once again, the rented vehicle used asa once again, the rented vehicle used as a terrorist weapon will stop it has happened so many times, in nice, berlin, london, now barcelona. this was something that was called upon in 2014 by the spokesperson of isis at the time. do not think of anything sophisticated, grab a knife from the draw, ram pedestrians with a car, hit them with rocks. people did not heed that advice at the time but as it becomes more difficult to do sophisticated attacks isis has been called on more for these low grade attacks, acting locally. what do the police do now? they are responding, they responded with force in cambrils. we know of five terror suspects were shot dead. the fa ct terror suspects were shot dead. the fact they were able to respond so quickly shows that maybe they were able to gain some intelligence at
12:38 pm
the moment that let them know about that. also some of these people may have been on a watchlist before. often when you see terror attacks ta ke often when you see terror attacks take place in europe, the people we re take place in europe, the people were somewhat known. there were ongoing investigation is happening. so they just close ongoing investigation is happening. so theyjust close down very quickly on these people. there probably are other people under investigation, that will be arrested by the sooner, but nothing that can be done is to get the people surrounding the cell is not radicalise themselves to be called bystanders. to get them to come forward when they hear something will see something, to actually say something to police. terrorism researcher based in barcelona, thank you for your time. to recap, the latest that we know is that 13 people died here in barcelona yesterday. one person died in that attack in cambrils in which five terror suspects were shot dead by the police. they were wearing what were thought to be explosives, but those according to the authorities it turned out were fake.
12:39 pm
14 dead, altogether in those two terror attacks. 130 people injured. that is the latest from barcelona. back to you in the studio. within the last few minutes the labour leaderjeremy corbyn has given his reaction to the attacks in spain. let's listen to what he said. shocked and appalled at what has happened, a terrible loss of life. people, innocently walking down las ramblas, enjoying themselves and somebody does this unbelievable act which has taken the lives of many. obviously my sympathies to the families of all those that have lost friends, and those that have been injured. and thank you to the authorities in spain for reacting so quickly. and the emergency services on the scene in less than minutes, to try and help those people. the pictures i saw last night were truly shocking. this is the seventh vehicle attack in a year in europe. do you think cities are being targeted, why do you think so?m looks as though cities are being
12:40 pm
targeted. obviously whatever appropriate security arrangements can be made should be made. it is also a question of intelligence, looking at anybody that might be preparing to do this and taking the necessary intervention before the attacks take place. again we saw the use of a rented vehicle to take a tourist hotspot. there were talks in june about making new laws to make it harder to higher band short notice, dating as worthwhile? sometimes people need to hire vans at short notice for good reason, building companies, self—employed workers. lots of people do need to hirea ban workers. lots of people do need to hire a ban at short notice. i think a requirement to show identification and show what you want to use the vehicle or is there enough. it is reasonable in that sort of —— that that sort of thing should be brought in to prevent the use of crime. of course we don't want to make it impossible to hire a timber maghera at short notice because people need to go about their daily business. at short notice because people need to go about their daily businessm the manifesto you pledged morse
12:41 pm
community support officers, could we use more armed police on the streets ? use more armed police on the streets? crucially, we need more police officers on the street. cooperation between community and police is important. community police is important. community police officers are an important pa rt police officers are an important part of that connection. the police are resource at one level, at the arms level, but they do need to be more police officers in general. that was jeremy corbyn giving more police officers in general. that wasjeremy corbyn giving his reaction in the last few minutes. we have just heard that a fourth person has been arrested in connection with those two attacks in spain. just in the last couple of minutes, police saying they have now arrested a fourth person as the hunt goes on for those responsible for the attack in las ramblas and the second attack in cambrils. let's get some perspective on what this could me for barcelona as a city and for tourism. we're joined by phoebe smith editor of the travel magazine wanderlust. thank you very much. of course, we
12:42 pm
know there are tens of thousands of british tourists in barcelona and other spanish cities. some may be very concerned about what they have seen and heard. recent figures show there are about 1 seen and heard. recent figures show there are about1 million brits there are about1 million brits there on holiday at the moment. we are in prime holiday season, and spain is one of the most popular destinations. obviously there will be concerns. as we saw from your footage earlier, people are already back out on las ramblas, doubling about their normal business. they have a right to be concerned and they should be following advice from local authorities, staying away from areas they have been told to stay away from, but in all cases it really is business as usual. the british are very resilient when it comes to holidays, and we do tend to say no, we will go no matter what. there is no reason to cancel, the fco has not changed their advice, they have not told us not to go. that has an implication on if you do wa nt to that has an implication on if you do want to cancel, you will know you
12:43 pm
are not automatically entitled to do so. we have seen so many people out there in the centre of barcelona, locals and tourists. standing there, for that minute silence, insisting that they will not be deterred. do you think it will in any way damage barcelona's reputation as a favourite destination for tourists, not just from favourite destination for tourists, notjust from britain but many other countries? i think it is unlikely. what tends to happen when we have seen similar events in other cities is that the immediate short term is it does not, because people have booked them they cannot cancel without losing their money. we do not see the bookings drop off straightaway. we might see a few people choose a different city less well—known city, that might become a trend. the longer term, people tend to be quite resilient. and quite resolute. we will not change what we going to do. of course we know that after the attack, the terrorist attacks on tunisia, the tourist industry there has taken a real
12:44 pm
downturn. yet of course, since then we have seen so many of these attacks here in the uk, in london, in other countries across europe, france and belgium. of course. the difference there, tunisia, egypt is another one, what actually happened was the fco, the advice changed. they said you could not go there so that invalidated pupils travel insurance. the tour operators stopped offering trips there, airline stopped flying. that is what really makes the impact, is in the industry reacts. it actually has its hands tied and cannot get people out there. i think if you look, as he said, things have happened in london and paris, in germany. the places that are very popular, with people, why does it end if you stop travelling? do you stop getting out of bed in the morning, crossing the street? it is still statistically, you are much safer going on holiday then you are driving in your car to then you are driving in your car to the airport for example. thank you very much indeed. stephanie walton was on las ramblas yesterday and spoke to ben brown.
12:45 pm
an hourand a an hour and a half before, we were literally walking where the attack happened. there were so many people around, everybody was enjoying the sunshine, living a carefree life and having fun. we tried to find somewhere to have a glass of wine and enjoy it. then, an hour before, me and my partner were just saying how there were so much peace around, it was a bit weird, isn't it? —— there were so many police around, circulating. then after that we heard a loud bang, and screams. i had my back turned, and i shot up and turned around in there were these floods of people just running. ta bles these floods of people just running. tables everywhere, glasses, and the thing i remember the most was the flip—flops. they were just everywhere. it was like people had just vanished, they had run for their lives. then there was a second van, which scared everybody else. we ran into the cafe. they shut all the shutters. my partner pushed me into
12:46 pm
a corner, all i kept thinking about was... ifelt like paris, london, the attacks were they came into bars and stuff and hurt people. the owners opened a back door so eve ryo ne owners opened a back door so everyone could run through, then they pushed everybody against the walls, because if another car came, they would then... you have a better chance. that's what we did. it was absolutely terrifying. when i turned around, i saw bodies everywhere. it's heartbreaking. really heartbreaking. you knew instantly, did you, that this was some sort of terror attack? especially with the increased police presence and stuff. when you heard that bang, obviously recent things happened, you know something is really wrong. it's not right. the sheer panic on everyone's faces. you know you have to run and get to safety. you have to hide. that instinct kicked in. but initially i just froze. that instinct kicked in. but initially ijust froze. you know... all those people. so many, kids everywhere. it was horrific, that
12:47 pm
image will stay in my mind for as long as possible. the police were there in large numbers before the attack. do you think perhaps they knew something might be going to happen? it felt like that. initially when we saw those police, we did not think something would happen, because you do not think. you are in barcelona, you don't think anything will happen. there were so many around, circulating, buti will happen. there were so many around, circulating, but i must applaud them. within seconds, they we re applaud them. within seconds, they were at that scene, auditing everybody. they kept pushing everybody, cuddling little girls and stuff to make sure they were 0k. —— cordoning everybody. you have said to me you have seen terror attacks unfolding on tv, but to be in the middle of it, to see it for real. you do not comprehend, when you see them running and the panic on the faces, you just watch it. but when you are in the midst of it, running for your life as well, it, running for your life as well, it isa it, running for your life as well, it is a feeling i have never ever experienced before and i never want to experience it again. my heart goes out to everybody who was hurt,
12:48 pm
or lost their lives. it's absolutely tragic what happened, broke my heart. it's such a beautiful city. you were here as a surprise for your boyfriend, is that right? yeah, a surprise he won't forget. it was a birthday trip away. we landed yesterday morning. went to the hotel, came back, looking for somewhere to enjoy some wine, enjoy the atmosphere and stuff. then that tragedy happened. thankfully we fly back tomorrow. people were coming back tomorrow. people were coming back onto the streets today, in large numbers, to say, chanting, we're not scared, we are not afraid. is that the message we need to go out? absolutely, we cannot let these people dictate our lives. you may not like it, but we cannot let them. everybody has to come together. that happened last night. it was so beautiful. even today, walking on the street, still a bit of an edgy feeling. if you hear a siren across the road, you are a bit like... bit edgy. but everyone is in the
12:49 pm
same situation, you all pull together. actually i feel really proud to be with them and sharing with them. it is a beautiful city, people come here from all over the world. last rambus particularly. we we re world. last rambus particularly. we were saying last night, you could not even move through the people, it is that busy. everyone is just enjoying the sunshine, having fun. for something to happen in the city, it is horrible. really horrible. that was stephanie walton speaking to ben earlier. former stickley come dancing contestant on holby actor layla moran lass as she had to hide ina layla moran lass as she had to hide in a restaurant freezer as the attack in barcelona was taking place. the actress who was married toa place. the actress who was married to a ronnie o'sullivan is on holiday in the city with her ten—year—old daughter. the 46—year—old recounted her ordeal on twitter in a series of posts and thanked the restaurant staff for keeping them safe. in a moment the news at one

12:51 pm
light winds across a good part of scotland. downpours are quite slow moving. we have even have reports of localised flooding across aberdeenshire. the rain will continue in north—east scotland this afternoon. northern ireland, england and wales has a mixture of sunshine and wales has a mixture of sunshine and showers, some showers heavy, perhaps thundery. there will be some blustery winds around, especially for the coasts of west wales and england. could see gales here for a time. those winds really strengthening through the latter pa rt strengthening through the latter part of the afternoon and into the early evening. we will continue to see showery rain working east, but that will tend to fade as we go through the small hours on saturday. many areas starting the weekend drive, and fairly cool as well. 11 to 13 degrees in towns and cities. saturday, another day of sunshine and showers, but fewer showers than today. more dry weather and sunshine. the lion's share of the sunshine. the lion's share of the sunshine found across scotland where will also be a bit on the blustery side. breezy generally across the
12:52 pm
country, and temperatures of 16 to 21 degrees. three saturday night for a time, we see this ridge of high pressure, could turn quite chilly in places for sunday morning. the leftovers of what was hurricane gert, by this stage it is just an area of cloud and some patchy rain, likely to progress across the south—west, maybe into the midlands. up south—west, maybe into the midlands. up to the north—east, still a lot of dry weather. and some spells of sunshine. that patchy rain will continue to journey northwards and distance during sunday night into monday, and behind it that is where we start to introduce this humid tropical air, especially in southern areas. for the start of next week, is could see temperatures in the south off into the 20s but with the chance of some rain further north and west. three days of mourning are declared in spain as police say they believe a network of at least eight people were behind the terror attacks that have left 14 people dead. during the early hours five suspects
